With the rapid development and wide use of Internet, information transmission faces a big challenge of security. Digital watermarking is a technique of data hiding, which provide security of data. The process of embedding additional data along with the digital audio, images and video is called digital watermarking. This paper classified various watermarking techniques and there comparisons. It starts with overview, classification, features, techniques, application and performance measuring of watermarking and a comparative analysis of watermarking techniques.
